It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #IMWAYR 8/28/23


It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
For readers of all ages

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a weekly blog hop we host which focuses on sharing what we’re reading. This Kid Lit version of IMWAYR focuses primarily on books marketed for kids and teens, but books for readers of all ages are shared. We love this community and how it offers opportunities to share and recommend books with each other.

The original IMWAYR, with an adult literature focus, was started by Sheila at Book Journeys and is now hosted by Kathryn at The Book Date. The Kid Lit IMWAYR was co-created by Kellee & Jen at Teach Mentor Texts.

We encourage you to write your own post sharing what you’re reading, link up below, leave a comment, and support other IMWAYR bloggers by visiting and commenting on at least three of the other linked blogs.

Happy reading!

This is my week off! I will see you next week. To learn more about any of these books, click on any title/image to go to the book’s Goodreads page or check out my read bookshelf on Goodreads.



I finished listening to Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt. I loved how this book dealt with some heavy topics, but it did so in a way that was engaging and light. I read this for a book club, and everyone enjoyed it—which is unusual for this group of nine people!

Young Adult

Saints of the Household by Ari Tison was SO GOOD. I am going to review it this Thursday! More soon. 🙂

  1. I heard an interview with McCurdy and have seen the book everywhere, but have no idea who the actress is so will probably pass. Just not my piece of nostalgia, I guess. If I want to read about problematic celebrity lives, I’ll go back to David Cassidy! : ) Glad you’re having a good reading week.
